Ok, maybe this is a little like the Lion King ;)

No, this is not a quote from the Lion King! Being a member of an organization like Scouting is in itself a great feeling.  Investing your own son is even that much better, but when a couple get to invest their own son together – that is truly a  family Scouting event! When AJ was…

Here we are half way through the year and we have had no posts this year!

Sorry.  My Bad.

That is not to say we have not done anything!  Not at all!  Some of the activities include PLTU (well done Brandon!) the Fern Kloof hike, The Plantation hike, the Scoutcraft Survival weekend, Sam did a first Aid course, we have helped out at several Walmer and Algoa events, attended Kontiki and have MclLeland up shortly.  Our planned bottle island camp has been moved into “summer” and will probably take place during December.

Also on the radar is the Cotswold 50th celebrations – August!  Can you believe it!

On the cub side we have a bunch of new members and the pack seems to be growing.  Mike and Jeno attended Lion camp, but unfortunately the Cub Kontiki was cancelled.


1st Cotswold are investing again…

…in something far more valuable than shares or property!  We are investing in the youth!

New chums at 1st Cotswold

Gino and Nathan were invested 4th November 2011

The 1st Cotswold Scout Group would like to welcome two new recruits who were invested on the Friday evening of 4th November 2011.  One brand new cub Gino and an equaly squeaky new scout Nathan.

You might recognise Nathan from the Joti camp post. Ifyou don’t recognise him its ok – he is the dude on the hilltop looking down at the laptop.  If you do recognise him then wow – well done!

It is always exciting to invest new scouts, but what is really getting us going here at 1st Cotswold is that these two guys are starting a trend!  We invest Ross and Leanne next week and we are looking forward to that almost as much as they are!

Ross and Leanne had to leave the hall during Nathan’s investiture ceremony so that they do not spoil their surprisefor next week.  The first investiture ceremony you ever attend must be your own – it’s simply that special!

If you know anyone who wants to join scouts, please let either them know how to contact us, or give us their contact details and we will follow up with them.

Scouting is a world-wide brotherhood (and sisterhood), so if you know someone who might want to join Scouts but is too far from 1st Cotswold – let us know and we will get them in contact with a scout group near them!
